Who wins Season 1 of 'The GOAT'?

OK, we understand you're looking for answers, but as of now, the winner of Season 1 of The GOAT remains a mystery. However, with the first three episodes now available to binge-watch, we can definitely eliminate some contestants from the race for the crown.

During the elimination in Episode 1, it comes down to a tie between Jason Smith and Joey Sasso. As the deciding vote, Tayshia Adams gives Joey the boot.

Departing from GOAT Manor, Joey reflects in his exit interview: "I was the winner of The Circle, so I don't think anyone — including myself — expected me to go home on the first night."

"People knew what I was bringing to the table," the Netflix reality star continued. "I think, frankly, there's a lot of people who are intimidated by that. I'm a big personality; I came here to be the GOAT, but unfortunately, it's not me."

Despite a bold move in the series premiere, Tayshia Adams finds herself on the receiving end of elimination in the subsequent episode. In Episode 2, she is eliminated by a vote of 10-3. Her reliability takes a hit after she reveals details about the all-girls alliance to fellow Bachelor franchise alum Joe Amabile.

During her exit interview, Tayshia tells producers that this unfortunate outcome "doesn't change anything." She adds, "I'm happy with my performance. I think I clearly did a little bit right. I think I'm a threat, and I do it because I care, and at the end of the day, I think I made some good connections with good people here."

Regarding what she would do differently, the former Bachelorette reveals she wouldn't win the first challenge. She continues, "Maybe sneaking up on them a little bit more, and also not caring if people like me or not. I think my honesty, and my want to include everyone in the conversation, bit me in the butt, but at the end of the day, I'm not mad for anything that I [did]."

Episode 3 takes an unexpected twist as Da'Vonne Rogers's strategy to eliminate Justin Johnson, also known as Alyssa Edwards, completely backfires. The men in GOAT Manor, along with CJ Franco, pivot the vote, resulting in a 7-5 decision that sends Lauren Speed-Hamilton out the door.

Chaos ensues as Lauren urges the group to vote out Da'Vonne next, only to be confronted by Mama Day herself, who insists she voted out Justin and points fingers at the men and CJ for orchestrating Lauren's shocking elimination.

In her exit interview, Lauren expresses the "hurt" of departing from The GOAT so early. She says, "You can’t trust anybody because this house is f--king crazy! It's cutthroat, people are doing whatever they need to do to stay in the house longer, and that's just not me. That's not what I stand for. So, I feel like I came here, [and] I represented me."
